Did You Know?

House: You know, the down vibe in here is totally ruining my Charlie's Angels fantasy. Referencing the ABC series (1976-1981) starring three beautiful women who work for a private detective agency run by a mysterious patron known only to them as Charlie. The show was remade the same year as this episode premiered, but it had already been cancelled when the episode aired.See more »

going downhill, 2 November 2011
Author: eadon-com from Shropshire, England

The female doctors do their best, but the writing for them is bad, and there is simply no fun. This is bad writing and the most boring that house has ever been. The female doctors casting is a failure, the small one is incredibly annoying, a squeaking nuisance. House himself is entertaining, and the prison break guy as flat as ever. There was a dull subplot involving Wilson, who is not an interesting character any more. The show is running out of steam pretty fast. That the show is watchable at all is down to Laurie, but this is putting a lot of strain on keeping the episode together. 5/10 for the show. - 0/10 for the assistants.
